39 Forever is an honest, insightful and laugh out loud comedy about ageing in an image obsessed world, where social media, photoshop and Botox have forever changed the quest for eternal youth. From her first childhood home perm to the last year of her 30s, Amity explores the pressure women face to stay forever young and questions whether 40 really is the new 30 – or if that’s just something people say to make them feel better.
Amity Dry is perhaps best known for her role on the hit reality TV show The Block and for her top 10 album, The Lighthouse. However she is making a name for herself internationally as a musical theatre writer and composer to watch. Her original musical, Mother, Wife and the Complicated Life has received rave reviews both nationally and internationally, and most recently completed a 43 show Australian tour.
The show played at the New York Musical Theatre Festival, the United Nations, 54 Below New York and was translated into Norwegian for a season in Norway. Later this year, it is being workshopped in London for a potential UK tour, with support from a London based production team.
“She is as sparkling and glittery as her beautiful gown and her voice is clear, crisp and strong with some notes that Streisand and Midler would kill for.” – Glam Adelaide
